In response to the increasing popularity of our recent American Idol podcasts, two of our fellow Blurbers have decided to make a follow up podcast. In our previous podcast, the two Blurbers debated about whether it was OK or not for the American Idol judges to openly insult the contestants.
This time around, we decided to discuss if it is okay for the crowd to boo the American Idol judges if they say something the crowd doesn’t like?
For people who don’t watch American Idol, right now on the show there are 16 contestants left. Each week, the contestants perform for a minute and a half. The judges then give them feedback on their performance. It seems however that the judges can’t say anything bad about the contestants without being booed by the crowd.
So our critical question is: Is it alright for the crowd to boo the judges? Is the crowd now being mean?
Here’s what we think:
Leave us a comment and tell us what you think…and join us again soon on The Blurb.
